Join us for a two-day conference which will see your students negotiate with more than 100 students from the UK and Germany to find solutions to real world problems.
The theme of this 2019 Conference is: "The Great Question: Where after all do universal human rights begin?"*
(*In her 1958 address to the UN, Eleanor Roosevelt posed what she called "the great question").
Our committees and topics for this year are as follows:
General Assembly Committee (GA)
1. Artificial Intelligence
2. Climate Refugees
Human Rights Council (HRC)

2. The Right to Privacy and Cyber Security
Security Council (SC)

This year’s conference will focus on human rights issues in honour of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The 2019 YMUN conference will address some of the most challenging and critical issues which humanity currently faces. Over the past year, famines, conflicts,terrorist attacks, natural disasters and extreme weather events, not to mention threats posed by new technologies, have wreaked havoc in the lives of many millions of people across the world, negatively impacting the very foundations of human rights, including: the right to life and living with dignity, health and security. In a fast changing world, your students will be tasked this year with exploring human-rights based solutions to a multitude of challenges that are threatening the very core of humanity.
